7:17 am
situation in france the czech republic or the netherlands and you see that more people can potentially slip through the safety net in europe's economic powerhouse this is seeing more and more germans turning to charities for help this food distribution center in berlin is one of many all around the country that helps to feed around one point six million germans every single month and if you look at the type of things that they're sorting out here for distribution it's fruit it's a batch to both it's the type of things that people need to have in their diets but that some in germany just can't afford. the effort to mention so many people try and deal with their poverty but it one point they realize they just can't take anymore and they come to us it's a difficult step but it becomes the only solution one woman who gave me the name and who didn't want to be identified told me how grateful she is for the help the
7:18 am
food bank provides. i had everything here eggs even fish bread the little things make a big difference the money i get from the state goes to keep the power on at most i have one hundred fifty euros a month i'm very happy to have this because of this i can buy clothes and live. some of those receiving handouts accuse germany's politicians of caring more for y.d. europe than the german people even of him under the we part of europe we help you why don't you help us we have hungry kids but the government says we should help immigrants take move them we have to close the open door oh charity organizers say that they've seen a change in the demographic of those coming to them for help. mentions once called we've noticed an increase of older people which is unbelievable for us traditionally old people in germany wouldn't ask for free food and now they have no alternative so we see more people whose need has become stronger than shame whilst
7:19 am
it is true that as a nation germany weathered the euro crisis better than most as a fine line between boom and bust for people in the e.u. is biggest economy peter all over r.t. belin. i look now at what our wept sings got in store for you things aren't looking good at focus she much as figures show record high levels of radiation in groundwater near the nuclear plants of japanese media claiming the situation is growing steadily worse all that's on r.t. dot com. also there people who give blood are always welcomed by the red cross but in austria the organization is facing a wave of outrage for turning back a muslim donor find out more on why. israel's borders with its arab neighbors are some of the most heavily fortified on earth lots within israeli society itself there's no shortage of tension between jews and muslims arabs make
7:20 am
up a fifth of the country's population but us policy or reports they're not always treated equally under the law and have a good morning they treat us like israeli citizens only when they want to convict us other than arabs to them and that's the pure racism and the policy of this country that tamils to for even six other arabs were found guilty of attempting to murder in a ton santa and his radio jewish terrorist who took aim at them on the film it's a conviction that is hard to comprehend very hard that the innocent victim is even put on trial let alone convicted on a ship it was here back in august two thousand and five that saddam and israeli soldier who deserted the army used his military issued rifle to fire at arab passengers on a bus he killed four and wounded seventeen before being attacked by the crowd they grabbed him while he was being handcuffed by police he never made it off the bus ryan those who were sentenced for his death think there's more to it than north
7:21 am
from what the israelis use acts of power to educate us so that if such attacks happen again no one will do to do anything i compared unstudied similar cases to this one in court where arabs from israel. committed acts against jews and they were killed by james for taking the law into their hands the jews were never convicted and no charges were brought against them it's clear there is a double standard in the justice courts a case in point you do in an israeli jew who shot and killed an arab terrorist after he murdered his shiva students while they were studying in jerusalem in two thousand and eight and shot him with two bullets in the head he spent around he was teetering and then the guy with the m. sixteen who is hiding behind a side door finished the deal we kept shooting at him until we emptied our magazines and that was. this they didn't even open an investigation file against the police didn't even ask him even check of the air was dead or not the scales of
7:22 am
justice on mean to balance in this scale set for we seem to feel killing a jewish terrorist in this scale get stuck doing praised for killing an arab terrorist but do they even know. israeli lawyer admit some adoption lake now feels of anything they took to wards arabs be treated united. she feels to me and so for we induced coma accused should have received harsher sentences i would say it's a disgrace people who kill someone was hands are tied in the back. who is not a fred anymore in love for the trial it's a pure america the conviction sends a message that they are a community their blood is cheap and they can spare our lives and so the verdicts out is there a double standard at play in israel which is what the courts are meant to determine in the first place policy are to tell every. where for someone to love or headlines

your best way to the. house of moscow. the alleged phone call between the assistant secretary of state and the u.s. ambassador to ukraine has created quite a controversy in the call like smug british colonisers cashless a big t. in africa they basically say that that need of books to fill he's not fit for the government of the of the needs of the baldwin become prime minister they also mentioning the help of the un to get this thing glued whatever that means although the authenticity of this phone call has not been confirmed but certainly hasn't
7:26 am
been denied this reminds me a lot of the snowden leaks independent journalists for years had been writing about government spying but it took snowden to shove it into people's faces and confirm that it was really going on we've heard from people like ron paul jesse ventura and many journalists that the u.s. state department uses a horde of international grant receivers and local political organizations to try to consciously and directly control sovereign nations and overthrow regimes they don't like and this phone call is legit that is the same level of undeniable evidence that snowden brought to the table to be fair during the cold war i could kind of see the justification to meddle in other countries so the soviets would create world communism but now who is the enemy that justifies a ukrainian regime change there is no such anime but that's just my opinion.
7:27 am
welcome to the kaiser report imax kaiser you know what fukushima first began melting down to go through sawdust and diapers into the disaster hole amazingly it didn't work in america when the deepwater horizon oil platform exploded b.p. tried plugging that disaster hole with a golf balls and rubber scrap alas that also didn't work now in the u.k. welly wearing david cameron is out in the drowning tory heartland throwing sandbags soldiers and cash potently into the flood waters but dave all the sticker balls in sheffield going to stop the rising tide that is sinking all boats into your black

hole of debt economy because it's the triple crunch of environment energy and economy and no junk shop can save us now. not even a one four seven will save us dave we've been snookered stacy. he has max it's a triple current of environment energy an economy and all the buffoons are throwing everything into the risk that we see around us the first have imax is golf balls fall short coping with twenty first century disasters chucking diapers and golf balls at multibillion dollar calamities so math has to deal with failure primitive at best even as the global hunt for energy enters new frontiers of risk disaster is beyond the coping abilities of a single company or even a country have prompted suggestions that a global body with military scale technical resources is needed now that's bloomberg news and they're talking in particular about energy whether it's tepco or
7:29 am
the deepwater horizon disaster but you know look at this disaster heading our way. here to the u.k. yeah many snowballs max to get a ball although i don't think he thinks knuckleballs could fill this disaster well it's the equivalent you know in the in japan they have many diapers they adult sized diapers that they threw into tepco and in the south of the united states they have lots of golf courses down there so they threw a golf course golf balls here in the u.k. somebody has the gall to take them to stop this disastrous roll from just wiping out britain but let's let's ask let's ask well neil sullivan he's the master said ronnie o'sullivan the current and five time snooker champion who's right here in the studio ronny welcome because the report they did you know all right i saw it at the masters another brilliant performance by the way thank you very much but today we're talking about disasters of the snooker balls so you know the five time
7:30 am
current world champion approximately how many snooker balls do you think would it take to show ronnie the photo here to stop this storm stone wow and let's not go that lot along this million billion us it isn't really in circles millions i don't think we have enough but that actually could save the economy if we had to manufacture a bunch of super bowls yeah exactly they have to benefactor a billion soccer balls and it would stimulate the economy here in the u.k. as i believe sort of balls are manufactured here in the u.k. it's the world leading us to go balls before china of course gets into the game. then but this is the thing actually the article points out that you know this rising risk as we go further out into the deep waters of the oceans to drill for energy we're going there's more and more risk in the financial system so just like throwing diapers and sawdust the big environ you know the energy catastrophes we thrown also.
